GCD Studios Jewelry Blog Hop

Hello all! Welcome to my blog and thanks so much for joining us today! (If you are just joining us and don't want to miss any of the fun, you can start at the top of the blog hop list HERE.)  Its a fun day because GCD Studios Design Team members are all sharing projects using the Melody Ross ChipArt Metal Pendant Kits... there will be great ideas and inspiration on every blog... fun huh? One of the best parts... 10 prizes along the way! So visit as many of us as you can and comment on each blog because the more you comment & hop... the better your chances are to win;)So here is my pendant... so fun & easy to make... possibilities & customization... endless. 

To make pendant:
1) peal off the top layer chipboard rectangle and replace it with patterned paper
2) adhere chipboard to pendant, cover with layer of glaze and dry with heat gun for crackled look
3) de-boss chipboard with stamp
4) color chipboard with Glimmer Mist, dry and adhere to pendent 
5) embellish with buttons, twine and sentiment

Now hop on for more great ideas;) Your next stop is the very talented Rita Barakat's blog: Let's Embellish.

Take care!
